Ed certainly had a great life and many friends. My father Robert P. Kennedy was also a lieutenant in the Army Air Corps in WWII. He and Ed were handball partners and won the Illinois State championship in doubles. The photo attached is the gold medal each received. Our condolences on his passing. The Kennedy Family.
